“Fantastic room and host in a great neighborhood!”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

We loved staying at Zen Trastevere and having Davide as our host. We stayed in the Black and White room which had an attached private bathroom. The room was spotless and exactly as pictured in the photos here and on his website. It's light and airy with a big window and the air conditioning works great. The fast wifi was also much appreciated. Breakfast was served in the room and was delicious every morning. Davide also provided some great recommendations for nearby restaurants.

The B&B is in a residential building next to a grocery store (look for signs for Billa, you have to walk inside the Oviesse clothing store to get to the stairs for it) so it was really convenient to get snacks and drinks. We were given keys to the building and B&B front door, so we could come and go as we pleased. The neighborhood Trastevere is also great and felt safe at night. Not only were some less touristy restaurants nearby, but it was convenient for getting to Vatican City, Colosseum and all of the main sights of Rome since the #8 tram stop was steps outside of your door.

We arrived at Zen Trastevere directly from the airport and it was an oasis! I was travelling with a friend and we stayed in the Black & White room which was beautiful, VERY spacious and had an attached private bathroom. Davide was a warm and hospitaable host providing info on the neighborhood and best restaurants. In the morning jetlag woke us up really early so we decided to venture on foot to the Colisseum---surprisingly its only about a 20 minute walk! And even though we got back at the very end of the breakfast hours, Davide still prepared our food and delivered it to our room (you get to chose from a list of options the nigth before!) Although The B&B isn't in the best neighborhood (and not the worst either!) its still plenty safe and in the middle of many tourist sites. Just a note if you're coming via public transportation--the tram to the B&B can be caught on the street outside the train station--walk beyond the circle where all the busses are parked---and onto the main street--you'll see the tram in the middle of the street and can catch it there. Also if you have heavy luggage there's an elevator in the building---use the ramp vs. the stairs when entering from the street and then take the lift to the B&B (don't make my mistake and try lugging your luggage only to fall down the marble staircase right on my rear end! lolol) I highly recommend this B&B if you're looking to stay in the Travestere area of Rome!!!

If your are going to Rome and wonder about where the best area to stay is - the answer is: Trestevere - in the area between Tibern, Viale Trastevere and Via Garibaldi. Here you will find all the restaurants and bars you need located in small adorable streets offering good food at affortable prices.
A really good pick for accommodation here would be B&B Zen Trastereve. There are 3 rooms: 'Red' and 'Purple' room have a balcony, but share a bathroom, the 'Black & White' room have it's own bathroom, but no balcony. We stayed in the 'Red Room' - a nicely decorated room, clear, with good space, own fridge, Wi-fi and a lovely balcony (when the restauration is finish). The breakfast is served at your room, and there are different thinks you can chose between, and enough to make you full. The bathroom is shared with the 'Purple Room' but that works fine.
The owner Davide is a friendly and helpfull guy which completes the total experience - the place is definitely worth recommending!

Very cosy, clean and stylish rooms with a balcony! Nice breakfest choice in the room. Davide is a very friendly a pleasant host who takes the time to give the best tips in the neigbourhood and in the city. The neighbourhood is walking distance from Tibera in a very lively and bohemian part of Rome. We enjoyed a great long weekend in Rome at this fantastic B&B. Definitielly recommended!

David has only been on business for a few months but has put a lot of his own money and thought into his new business. The purple room (the one in the photo) we stayed in was lovely, the mattress was high quality and the room was airy and very clean, it had a lovely balcony with room for chairs to have a few wines pre going out! The breakfasts were more than ample for a long days walk, the scrambled egg was great! David is very helpful, make sure you ask him about the sites and restaurants around Roma and trastevere! Stay here if you want a great B&B in a great leafy part of Roma for a great price (we found it hard to find cheap accommodation).

The only recommendation is for a few board games/tv in rooms as when it rained, it seemed to rain for most of the day..

Thanks David

Davide is a great host. He was there to greet us when we arrived and gave us walking directions that got us around the city...you can walk everywhere from the B&B! The location is amazing, also close to tons of bars and restaurants. There is a lot of attention to detail in the design and the room was quite, clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Rome.
